Zephyr Point


Zephyr Point Presbyterian Conference Center at Lake Tahoe is one our favorite places. Not only do the coordinators schedule great gatherings but the grounds take full advantage of the natural beauty of the Sierras.

Our wedding ceremony took place at the Zephyr Point Amphitheater. Linde was baptized at the dock nearby and to the left of the altar is a special memorial to Ryan's father, Steve Blocher.

A Special Dedication


A Special Dedication


 

 

In January 2010, Ryan and Linde had known each other just over a year. Ryan spent Christmas in the US, back from China. Ryan's father, Steve, took the whole family to Bodega Bay just after the New Year. Ryan’s proposal to Linde was still over a year away but Steve’s cancer made each day a blessing and a struggle. Ryan asked Steve to dedicate a song to Linde. It was a song Steve had played at his and Janelle’s wedding. With that, the Blochers had a good idea how important this Linde Underwood back in China was to Ryan.

Steve never got to meet Linde in this world. Ryan is pretty sure she would have liked him a whole lot. He would have adored her.

From this recording, it took Ryan 656 days to propose and 1,266 days to get to Zephyr Point. But Steve would have only another 283 days left with us. We are so grateful to share this with you today. Over 3,300 days have passed since Steve sang this song. Time moves so quickly. It feels like just yesterday we were married. And we are still on our honeymoon.

When Steve sang his favorite songs he seemed to make time stand still. We hope this song will take you back to June 22, 2013 (at least) and that blessed day we shared together on the shores of Lake Tahoe. If it takes you back even further, please tell us about it. We’d love to hear your stories.

Here is Steve’s dedication to Linde—Donovan’s “Catch the Wind”.
